Jane Austen Bridal Shower and FREE Printables!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for supporting our family.

My sister-in-law is getting married!  It’s super exciting and such a blessing that she’s found the man that God intended for her.  Her sister will be the maid of honor and our other sister-in-law and I will be the bridesmaids.  It’s such a happy time and we were blessed last weekend to throw a bridal shower for Sarah and some of her close friends.

One of Sarah’s favorite things to do is read.  Especially Jane Austen.  So that’s how we chose the shower theme.  It turned out so beautiful!  I might still have up some of the decorations just because of how lovely they are…maybe…but I wouldn’t admit it!  I’d love to share some of the photos with you and I’m also including zip files with ALL the printable decorations so you can use them to decorate for a party or shower too!  You could even just use them to decorate your home library or sewing room.  I just love how they turned out!

Want to know where I got my inspiration?  Pinterest of course!!  Check out my Jane Austen Shower board or I’d love to have you follow me on Pinterest!

We also decorated the table with paper flowers, book page hearts, photos, and candles.

I was thrilled with how the shower turned out!  Everyone seemed to have a great time and it was a beautiful shower!  I hope you enjoy using the printables!

First, I’d like to show you the invitation I created for the shower.  I love how they turned out!!  If you’d like invitations like these for a shower you’re planning, I can customize it for you and email you the JPG for you to print off yourself for $10.  Just shoot me an email if you’re interested.

Now for the free printables!  First, let me tell you that these are all JPG files.  You’ll want to print them off as such.  If you have a photo printer, great!  Or you can do like I did and send them to Walmart and have them print them for you!  They all say in the file name what size they should be printed as except for the treat toppers.  Print those as 4×6’s.

  1. I love this!! I’m such a Jane Austen fan. While I’ve been happily married for 11 years now, I’m totally pinning this on Pinterest so that younger girls I know can do this. Very clever!

    • Thanks! I love that many of these things could also be used for birthday parties for older daughters too. My sister-in-law is actually taking all the decorations to hang in her home library. If I had a home library, they’d be going there! 🙂

        I wanted to see if I could get the JPG file for the shower invitation that you made. We loved it and would like to use it for a shower we are throwing in June.

        Does the JPG file come with that specific backdrop (at the top & the Jane Austen silhouette), and could we change the color from pink to green?

        Thank you, hope to hear from you.

        • Hi Cristina!
          I’d be happy to customize the invitation for you! Yes, the JPG comes with that backdrop and the silhouette, and I can change the colors however you’d like. Just shoot me an email with the information you’d like on the invitation and I’ll get it ready for you. My email is candleinthenight2003 at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

          • Ellen Buechler says:

            Love this! Are you still willing to share the jpeg for the invitation? We also loved it with all the details! 🙂
            Wedding in March and hope to do the shower in late December or early January.
            So appreciate your help! Want this to be as special as she is.
            thanks – look forward to hearing from you.

          • Hi Ellen!
            Yes, I’m still willing to do the custom invitation. Just send me an email at candleinthenight2003@yahoo.com with all the information and your paypal address. I’ll send you an invoice for $10 and once you’ve paid, I’ll send the jpg so you can get your invitations printed.
            Thanks and blessings to your family as you plan the wedding!
